"David did his due diligence to understand the essence of myself and my husband to be. The ceremony was customized to meet our needs and dreams. David was flexible when our wedding was supposed to start at 1 pm in the mountains and then we had to change it to 5 pm in the city that same day. He made the switch with no qualms or questions. Working with David felt natural and he maintained an ease throughout the day. Which kept us at ease. We have been married for 22 (June 1996) years and so honored he was a major part of our day."

"Ira officiated my niece's wedding. His approach is heartfelt, sincere, caring and personal. I felt as though he was actually a member of the family. He actually navigated the room and spoke with all the guests PRIOR to the ceremony to ascertain their relationship and where they traveled from. These pieces of knowledge were then integrated into his presentation. The ceremony verbiage flowed like poetry with appropriate sentiment and emotion. I highly recommend Ira's services."

"The impact on our life that Joy has made is apparent to all we spend time with. We were looking for a wedding officiant and found a person we consider "Family" now. Her personal and knowledgeable insights to merging two into one, helps us daily. We have reached levels of intimacy and understanding that were unknown to us through the skills and classes lead by Joy. Her outlook is so much more than a wedding officiant is, but, what it should be! We LOVE her and could not imagine anyone else sharing the "before", "during", and "after" as we became Mr and Mrs Hampton."

"Tom Letts is an incredible spiritual director. His teaching is accessible for first-time spiritual direction and deeply formative for long-time spiritual pilgrims. Tom is very well read and possesses years of formal education and experience in ministry and spiritual direction. Yet, his formal education does not stunt his ability to connect with people of diverse backgrounds. Tom is aware of the fullness of the present moment. This attitude of awareness manifests through Tom's passion for his directees' personal, spiritual growth. Tom cares about people in a way that I have never experienced before. If you have the privilege of sitting under his direction, your eyes will be opened to the realities of love, truth, peace, and redemption, which reside, unnoticed, in everyday life. I strongly recommend making space in your life for time with Tom Letts. You won't know if you should be furiously writing down everything he says or just sitting back to enjoy his company. But, you will be better off because of it, either way."

"Teri was wonderful from first meeting to her, to helping coordinate our vows, the ceremony to her comic relief starting the ceremony. She braved the Colorado elements and roads with a spring snow storm to make sure our day went well. Truly wonderful and blessed to have found her!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to officiate a wedding?

The national average cost to hire a wedding officiant is $150-$200. Wedding officiant rates are affected by the date of the ceremony, the time of day, and how far the officiant has to travel. Some officiants may charge extra for additional ceremonies like unity candles or sand ceremonies, as well as the cost of the supplies. Many wedding officiants have higher rates for larger weddings and lower rates for smaller, more intimate ceremonies. Personalizing the ceremony means a lot to some couples. Wedding officiants may have flat rates for standard ceremony templates, perhaps $100-$125, and charge more for a more customized experience, such as $150-$200. This allows the couple to collaborate with the wedding officiant as they are building a unique ceremony script. At the pre-wedding meeting, the officiant will ask whether the couple plans to write their own vows and how much input they have about the rest of the wording and flow of the ceremony. Additional planning meetings and extra communication can add up to a higher overall cost. If your venue has parking or other fees, you may need to pay on behalf of the officiant. Often wedding officiants can rent sound systems and wireless mics if you have an outdoor wedding location or venue that is not wired. These extras will also increase the overall cost.

What does it mean to officiate a wedding?

To officiate a wedding is to oversee the official union of two people in marriage. A wedding officiant is vested with the power to legitimize your union in the eyes of the court. An officiant also sets the tone for your ceremony, leading the couple through their vows and shaping the experience with the words they choose and the pace they set. An officiant may be based in a religious faith, may be an interfaith officiant, may be a secular officiant, or may be a friend or family member who has received ordination online.

You can have a traditional wedding officiated, or you can also have an officiant oversee a commitment ceremony, a vow renewal or an elopement. Once the wedding is complete, the officiant will ask you to sign the wedding certificate, and will then submit the document to the court on your behalf. This makes your marriage legal. Wedding officiants work with you no matter how simple or elaborate you would like your ceremony to be. The more involved wedding officiants are in the planning and customization of the ceremony, the more they will typically charge.

Who performs a wedding ceremony?

Anyone who is authorized by the court or a credible online source has the power to perform a wedding ceremony. Traditionally, wedding officiants were ordained members of a religious organization or civil officiants authorized by the court to legally marry two people. With the increasing customization and personalization of weddings, many couples are asking a friend or family member to become ordained and act as their wedding officiant. Wedding officiants can represent a wide range of backgrounds including Christian, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, nondenominational, interfaith or nonreligious. There is no legally required structure for a wedding ceremony, so couples can customize the language of the ceremony and their vows in any way they desire (though members of some religions may have specific requirements). To legally validate the marriage, the couple and the wedding officiant must sign a marriage certificate after the ceremony verifying the date and names of those involved. The wedding officiant should then submit the certificate to the court, which will in turn mail an official marriage certificate to the newly married couple.
